"I’m sure that perfectionists are the least productive creatures on earth. I’m in that stage of the edit where everything has stopped making sense. You realise that word or phrase that you have been rearranging over and over again has no relevance and you have to fight the urge to to hit delete. I always have this overwhelming feeling of wanting to run away/start again, but normally once I realise that I have tried every angle or every cut, that and only that is the time I can relax and move on. Even though I know this about myself, I still do it every time. I wonder how much time I’d have for other things if I wasn’t so caught up on doing things a certain way."
"It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees."
